WHAT IT IS: The chart-topping, viral hit-makers have extended the boundaries of what a 21st century band can bring to pop music and pop culture. The multi-platinum Canadian quintet had already built a significant global following when their cover of Gotye’s “Some­body I Used to Know” ignited the blogosphere, eventually garner­ing 164m views. Last year’s sin­gle, “Red Hands,” generated 11m Spotify streams and spent five weeks at #1 on AAA. Most notably, however, WOTE are one of the few acts to continually and successfully find success both on DIY online platforms and throughout the traditional music marketplace.
